I recently did after-school care for a family of three. Duties included assisting the two eldest children in homework and driving them to after-school activities. I have been a nanny for two different families within the past year. The first family I worked for had two girls, ages 7 and 9. The oldest girl had Austism and the younger had ADHD. I worked on school work with the children and took them to therapy sessions. I am not with them right now because the girls attend two different summer camps. The second family I work for has two children, ages 2 and 3, one boy and one girl. I watch them while their mother runs errands and when she takes the daughter to different activities. I have helped my disabled aunt take care of her four children ages 1-10. I usually picked them up from school and worked on homework with them and then did different activities with them.
